Lifestyle Maternity and Newborn Photography
Let's capture the most amazing time in your life, waiting to meet your beautiful new baby.
I adore capturing the love between partners and the excitement of your other children as they wait to become “big brothers & sisters”. Maternity sessions are best scheduled around 32-35 weeks, when you have a lovely baby bump and before tiredness and generally feeling “over it” starts setting in. We will plan every detail of your session to really achieve your dream photo experience – from casual, fun and candid on location or a snuggled up session in your own home. I know every woman has her comfort zone so I get to know you during our consultation to decide how much baby belly to show off- some prefer to stay more modest and others can't wait to get their nude on!! It’s all up to you!!
Have a look through the gallery of my work - if you love what you see, get in touch and we can start planning your dream session!! An inspiration guide can be found here.
Pregnancy timeline series
Starting from between 12 & 16 weeks these monthly mini sessions take place in my home studio and capture your body's amazing transformation to 40 weeks. We finish our sessions off with you & babe in arms! You will receive 4 digital images from each session and the completed timeline image printed and framed at the completion of our sessions together. What a precious keepsake!
In Home Newborn Sessions
Your newborn session will take place in your own home, no packing up your brand new baby and bags of stuff to have your photos taken. I prefer to capture you and your new baby snuggled up in your own bed or in your living room with older siblings. My style is a lot more relaxed, the pressure is off for the perfectly posed images with perfect toddlers looking perfectly into the camera. I adore babies being held and loved by their parents, their brother or sister even sniffed by the family dog. I love real life, real love, devotion and real interaction – these are the precious memories time forgets. No need to stress over the 12 day window for newborns, we can arrange for your session right up to 12 weeks if you prefer. Contact me now to book, I cover all areas of the Sunshine Coast. You also have the option to be photographed in my home studio - these are not posed baby sessions - relaxed and candid style photos with you and your new baby.
Fresh Baby Session
Are you unsure about having your labour and birth photographed but you still want brand new baby moments to keep forever, because let's face it, newborns change from day to day. Call them Fresh 48, Hello Baby, Fresh baby or in-hospital newborn sessions - it's the session that happens within 48 hours of birth and it might be more for you. I come to your place of birth (hospital or home) and take precious photos of your brand new baby when they are only just opening their eyes, still a little puffy from birth, those tightly clenched hands, peely feet (or even a little fuzz on their back). The first couple of days with a newborn is tiring, you are still recovering from your birth, getting breastfeeding started, learning all about your baby and these days go quickly. Let me preserve these moments forever.
